    This property was just as described .and perfect for our requirement

    This was our first visit to Madera. We spent a month at the house,December thro January.The weather was perfect .Warm during the day and just a little cool in the evening. The owners were most helpful and anxious to please.Alhough a can is not essential ,if you wish h to see the inner parts of the island, af car is well worth hiring.We shall most certainly return to this most beautiful house.

    5/5 Excellent

    Wonderful Time

    We were warmly greeted with a glass of Madeira wine and a local passion fruit drink for our boy. The host was a very warm and kind lady, who occasionally left us a basket of fruit and made us a lovely cake! The property was easy to find and well located opposite a small supermarket and cafe and close to the main tunnel roads. The home was clean to a high standard and the kitchen was well equipped. We would happily go back to the same place.

    A hidden jem!

    The villa was exactly as advertised and was immaculate inside and out. Spotlessly clean and everything you could need to be at home. Well laid out and with plenty of room for everyone. In all, everything looked as brand new, and we couldn't find anything to fault. A lovely location looking across the valley and away from the noise and bustle of the tourist areas of Funchal. There are a number of steps down to the property so if you struggle with steps this may not be the place for you We were met on arrival by the owner who is a charming lady, with a welcoming glass of Madeira wine, who showed us around the property and where everything was. There are two restaurants a short distance up the valley which we heartily recommend. To make the most of your visit a car is essential. Driving around the Island is easy and gets you to all the places that organised tours don't touch - very much worth the effort. We would have no hesitation about using the villa again on our next visit to Madeira.

    Lovely Home away from Home

    This property was as beautiful as the pictures shown. We found the house very well equipped with every convience needed for our month stay. It is situated in a charming and welcoming community with access to groceries and coffee shop directly across the street. Our owners welcomed us on arrival with a toast of Madeira wine and were able to provide us all the information we needed to find our way around. They were very accessible to us during our stay with immediate response to our needs. Maria surprised us several times with baskets of local grown fruits and lettuce form her garden. We loved the location as we were looking for a rural experience and we had rented a car for the duration of our stay. We were happy to discover that most of the tour groups offer a local pick up and the bus stopped in front of our house. The house does not have a central heating system so we did have to adjust to the coolness of the house as we were there in February and March but the beds had lots of comfy blankets available. Thank you ladies for providing us with such a lovely retreat to come home to after our days of exploring Madeira.
